The walk is on varied terrain including sections of sand, shingle, pebbles, rock and salt marsh. The last part of the walk over the salt marsh involves crossing gullies, these can be quite wide and slippery. This challenging walk takes about four hours & involves crossing two river channels which are cold and sometimes fast flowing, the height of the river is usually between knee and thigh deep!
Expect breath taking scenery and sand between your toes as we navigate the bay’s unique landscape. We have once again been fortunate enough to book places on the famous route from Arnside Promenade to Grange Promenade takes around four hours to complete and we will be led by King’s Guide to the Sands, Michael Wilson. Due to the unique terrain of the Bay, we cannot guarantee the exact distance, however, on previous walks we have clocked the total at around the 8 mile mark.
The final route will be set as soon as the tide departs the shore on the day of the challenge and Michael will guide you across the Bay following a safe route.
By participating in the Kidneys for Life Morecambe Bay Walk, you’ll be helping us raise awareness and funds vital research and patient support. Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of those affected by kidney disease.
So mark your calendars, invite your friends and family, and let’s come together for a day of fun, support, and community! Register now and let your footsteps be part of the journey towards a brighter future for kidney patients.
